There are two reasons this approach won’t work. For one, all carbohydrates are not created equal. A ketogenic diet (the keto-sa diet) is designed to prevent blood sugar levels from spiking and causing the overproduction of insulin-the hormone that helps convert carbohydrates to body fat. Even bread made from 100% whole wheat flour contains enough refined carbs to produce this insulin-raising, fat-storing effect in some people.
Secondly, this program is not just about rapid weight loss – it’s about learning to eat only nutrient-dense carbohydrates for the rest of your life. These are foods that are packed with the most antioxidant vitamins and healthy phytochemicals relative to the amount of carbohydrates- so you’re getting the most bang from your carbohydrate buck.
